      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

I wanted to save my 3000th post for a "special" shot. But alas, this is the middle of the summer in southwest Minnesota. After 60 miles, this is the best I could come up with. frown

Stopped down to f11 to maintain focus for all the ducks.

3000. Ouch! Makes my shoulder ache just to think about. Nice photos. The ducklings are adorable, and I never manage to get a redwing that isn't pure homely somehow. Throw a pelican in there and some mourning doves and that is a reflection of SWMN. If not very exciting, it is who we are, and they can always be doing some interesting things. I have been seeing more dickcissels, though, and a red-headed woody and horned larks and some really wild swallow activity.

Was the red-head a chance sighting or is it hanging around and feeding from your suet feeder? I haven't seen one of these for at least 15 years. I'd love to get a shot of one of these pretty woodpeckers.

It was a chance sighting, but he was really hanging around, just moving far enough to avoid me but not leaving. Lincoln county, County Road 113 running north/south just west and south of Dead Coon. He was right across the road from Blissful Cattle on the power poles.
